Monday Inspiration

I’m really excited by brass and bronze at the moment. I’m sure if I sat and thought about it I could pin point why, but at the moment my magpie eye is drawn to these two metals.  I have brass in my own home already (Morrocan tray and punched pendant light, a couple of brass figurines and a beautiful brass cocktail table) but no bronze. So when I was flicking through Traditional Home magazine online the below image stopped me.

The marble-topped bronze coffee table is from Matthews & Parker Ltd, which is a US based company. 

Maybe it the beautiful amethyst tones in the flowers in such an elegant vase (from and certainly the small bowl on coffee table helps. But the photographer has caught the composition well and it makes the table just jump from the page for me.

    This is very beautiful! The contrasting colors, patterns do jump out of the picture! Love the contrast with the pattern in the carpet!

    You know that carpet really does set off the table beautifully Kathy. In a beautiful interlocking circle pattern.

    Something for everyone in this picture
